Exploring the rugged trading town of Tatau (basically an extended round-about with dirty twin-cab four-wheel drives which were double-parked in front of the Chinese wholesalers who were selling the rice by the 10-kg bag, cooking oil by big cans and eggs by stacks of cardboard crates) where the Trans-Borneo highway crosses the Tatau River, the main artery for many longhouses and logging camps further upriver on the Tatau River and its tributaries.

Taking a shared van (one way MYR 8.- or US$ 2.30 per person) from Tatau to Bintulu and hiring a teksi  (MYR 45.- for the ride) from Bintulu to the Similajau National Park (entry fee for senior citizens: MYR 5.- per person), about 30 km NE of town.
